I have a TRW 1/2 inch click Torque wrench that sheared off while attempting to remove a Subaru axle nut (over 200 ft lbs!)

Does someone know of a ratchet head repair kit that fits this old brand? I hate to toss old tools...especially when they cost as much as a new axle!!

I take it you can't replace the entire head?
you could always just lock up the ratchet mechanism.

repairing it will most likley cost more than its worth. ifyou have been using it to remove stuff hard enough to break the head you have probaly ruined the calibration too. they are not designed to remove stuff. thats what breaker bars are for. many times it takes far more torque to remove somthing than it did to install.
